Two suspected armed robbers were on Friday afternoon shot dead and another arrested by the Edo State Police Command, Benin City.
It was reliably gathered that the four-man robbery gang had trailed their victim (name withheld), who came to Benin from Ughelli in Delta State, to buy a car, to a new generation bank located around Technical Road Junction in the City, where he had gone to withdraw money.
The robbers who reportedly came in a grey colour Toyota Corolla car with an Abuja registration number, were said to have gone into the bank with their victim.

The robbers thereafter shot sporadically into the air to scare passersby and escape.
